The Bronx rapper was at the club for a performance by her husband's group "Migos".

She turned herself in at a Flushing precinct in Queens before 10 a.m. Her bodyguards shielded her with black umbrellas.

The female MC allegedly will be charged for ordering an attack on 2 bartenders at Angels Strip Club, according to the publication.

In a separate incident earlier this month, the "Bodak Yellow" star made headlines after an altercation at a New York Fashion Week event with fellow rapper, Nicki Minaj. Ultimately, the fight came to include bottles, chairs and at least one hookah. Both women sought medical attention and reported the incident to police.

Cardi will likely be charged with reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct, TMZ reports.

The rapper was fingerprinted and had her mugshot taken, and was later recorded leaving the police station with a smile on her face. After encountering the Gi sisters in real life, she allegedly ordered members of her posse to attack them.
